He was released Feb. 5 on $10,000 bail.

Eight days later, police were called to Karen Stigleman's home. When they arrived, Aaron Stigleman ran from the house naked and refused to follow commands to stop and lie on the ground.

Officers used a Taser to subdue him. They found Karen Stigleman dead of a gunshot wound to the head in her bedroom. A .45-caliber pistol and a .223-caliber semi-automatic rifle were found in the room.

Funeral services for Karen Stigleman will be 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at First Baptist Church of Elk City, 1600 W Country Club Blvd.
